hi again.

I've found a way to use my existing Canon EX580II flash units with the X-T1. I need to set my Yongnuo YN-622C TX to recognise the Fuji, then away we go. The TX will talk to the 622 C units under my flashes and give me full manual control. Excellent.

But something I don't understand. I'm told that I have to go into the Screen Set up page on the menu and turn off Preview Exposure White Balance simulation. When I do this all that happens is that the image on screen seems a touch darker.

Does anyone know what the purpose of this exercise is? How does it improve my image taking?

The common wisdom suggests that landscapes get shot mostly with wide angle lenses.

I'm not at all sure that's true, and I'm noticing that quite a few of my recent shots exploit much longer focal lengths.

It's no secret that I'm a XC50-230 fan. It's a lovely light lens that exceeds all expectations and costs next to nothing, but I do also carry primes and find that quite a few of my images get taken on the XF35 and XF60.

Recently though I've also been having fun with the wonderful XF90mm.

This is one from late October in the Lake District

The Fuji Guys Billy (CAN) and Marc (UK) visit Japan to see the Fujifilm Sendai factory where they assemble various photographic equipment including the new XF35mmF2 R WR lens. They give you a behind the scenes look at how lenses are assembled and the quality and care taken in every Fujifilm product.

i happened to read an article concerning stabilisation and problems that can occur when stab is not needed .
the article was advising people not to put it continuously .it explained that even at high speed it would still be working but to create blurred pictures!!
using my xe2 , from time to time i was surprised to find pictures taken at 1/400 s with kind of strange "moving" blur with no sharp point of focus
after having red the mentionned article ,i decided to put no stab on my 18-55 mm and the result is that now i don't have this problem anymore ...and it seems that direct jpg shots are little bit sharper straight from camera

hope ,this ,would be useful
see you boys ....and girls !

I was posting a couple of recent Fuji landscapes taken in one of my favourite place in the English Lake District - Little Langdale, when I unearthed this old shot of mine taken a few years back on an 'old' Nikon D200.

Hey guys, do you think the new 35/2 lens could be suitable for concert photography. I am not a pro and i am just doing it as a hobby, in small clubs in my city so i am really close to the stage and 35mm would be perfect.
Currently i am using old manual Auto Rikenon 1.4 and Pentacon 1.8 lenses and i am pretty OK with the results, but i am missing the AF:

I am not always shooting wide open so probably 35/2 @2 should produce quite good results in these conditons, what do you think?

Was sitting in the backyard when one of our local hawks decided it was time to join in the Thanksgiving celebration--squirrel not so lucky. Anyway nothing fancy---just grabbed the XT1 and 50-140 before it took off with its meal....just a few quick snaps....although I shoot mostly with prime lenses---happy I made this purchase.

Still trying to learn the best settings for autofocus - Should the "zone" setting only be used for moving subjects or is it also good to use with still and candid shots - I like to take some set family shots and candid shots during a get together - Should I be using AF-S with single point or AF-S with zone - Again thanks for any info

As this is a range I won't be using too often, I decided to look for an XC in stead of the XF. I considered buying a second hand one till I found a new one for what I think is a bargain: 189 euro incl. free shipping in NL. Have a look if you're interested at

Allanbill99's terrific recent post reminds me that winter's on the way.

So I had a look back to a month ago when autumn mists were still hanging in the Lakeland valleys.

This is an early morning shot in Little Langdale - a favourite place and home to one of my climbing club's cottages.

late edit: I forgot to mention that this was another taken with the XC50-230, in this case at the 'wide' end

Inspired by RoyUK's Scottish shots, here's an Autumn-turning-Winter shot taken from the side of Helvellyn in the Lake District on Sunday. I was out for a long run with my XT10 / XF56 and took a wrong path - thank god I did - it's not often you see light like this - especially as I'd been looking at the inside of a cloud all morning!

I've been forcing myself to go out with just the one reachy prime recently (coming from a background of 27mm FFE) and I must say it is certainly encouraging me to look at things differently

Seattle Center  (3 of 4).JPG Seattle Center  (1 of 4).JPG Seattle Center  (4 of 4).JPG On my way to work Monday I stopped by the Seattle Center to take a reflection shot. I had seen this puddle of water Sunday afternoon and thought that it might make an interesting shot. It was very dark and the only light was from a street lamp and the space needle. The photo was taken with an XT-1 16-55 lens iso 400 timed exposure from a tripod . Added are couple more shots from Monday morning
